The Farmer’s Market Breaks Ground

Emmy -- June 3rd, 2008

The official groundbreaking for the Harrisonburg Farmer’s Market pavilion was held this morning at 10:30. I walked down with some co-workers, but we left before the ceremony. The market was busy as usual, and I saw several members of the local media. Hopefully someone was there for the ceremony and took some pictures or has a bit more to add to this story. I haven’t noticed anything on the other media sites yet, but I’m sure there will be soon. I’m really looking forward to the pavilion, especially on rainy days! You can see pictures of the pavilion here.
